There was one gender in 1950?
It's a 2-dollar coin.

Cleary you need your vision tested.

If you ever learned German language you would see it has three genders
I've always found German to be a bit queer.

Oddly eggs are neutral gender in Italian (l'uovo) like German, although in German they should really be masculine?

As do third-person personal-pronouns in English.

Which begs the question, why don't those who are neither 'he' nor 'she' just use 'it'?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

How on earth is a Center for Disease Control supposed to work without using "evidence-based" and "science-based" data?

Oh, maybe the Republicans would like the US to switch to faith-based medicine?

Well, if it is a good idea for fighting disease, maybe the approach should be extended to other key areas, such as aircraft safety or developing nuclear weapons.

Probably more like his investments are up +30%.



It is so hilarious at times. Watching the delirium of oversensitive petunias is priceless. Jake Tapper is really funny to watch.

Glad the US finally has a real president that does the right thing after such a long period without one. I might start referring to Trump as "Pops" or "My Dad".

That was only Year 1. He's done a lot for one year. Year 6 or 7 is normally when Presidents are unshackled from political consequences. Imagine an unleashed Trump in Year 6 or 7.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

One day Trump is a 'lame duck' who couldn't organise a root in a brothel let alone effect any real change in politics, the next day he is a dangerous dictator who is plunging us all into a premature WW3. Hard to keep up!

'Campaign Trump' was my favourite version.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

The Trump admin’s 7 words reminds me of another 7 words......

Except Carlin was a lot funnier. Probably make a better president too.

Trump plans to campaign aggressively for 2018 midterms: Source

Looking at the Alabama campaign and results then the Dems will be sending Trump bouquets of flowers if campaigns!

Saturday night live with Trump (Baldwin) hanging decorations with the faces of people fired from the White House on the Christmas tree of shame here.

Also a piece on Jones beating Moore in Alabama.

Keeping people on their toes is an art. You can't be too dumb to keep contantly throwing people's expectations so off the mark.

Too bad he had to happen, imho. He is a pretty costly wake up call.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Das grammatische Geschlecht von Mädchen ist sächlich. Deshalb heißt es beispielsweise in Relativsätzen: Das Mädchen, das … Obwohl das Wort eine weibliche Person bezeichnet, ist das grammatische Geschlecht ausschlaggebend und das bezugnehmende Pronomen muss ebenfalls sächlich (Neutrum) sein: Das Mädchen hat seine Eisenbahn kaputtgemacht.[1]

Sorry for the German
